It had a bit of everything I like in a book: romance, adventure, cowboys...and I kinda like zombie books, too (though they have to have a bit of romance in them as well). It didn't shirk on the horror details either with some rather creepy scenes involving one family.
I really liked Trace/Cowboy and Elisabeth/Red. They were both really great characters and I have to say that Cowboy seemed like the ideal guy to meet in a wild west zombie apocalypse. As for Red, she was pretty kick-arse. The secondary characters were cool too.
I'm very intrigued as to what will happen next in the series and can't wait to read the second book in the series.
Scott has crafted a beautifully developed tale about surviving the plague that has swept across the nation, in the era of the wild west. The characters are what drive the story, and Scott makes sure to give them a sound back story to work with as needed. This book focuses primarily around the leading lady - Red, actually you'll find that without Red, the story would end pretty fast. Red, is a woman who knows what she wants and how to get it. She doesn't need anybody and anything to tell her what to do and when to do it. Or is she truly that strong willed woman? That is the question that we explore in Wanted: Dead or Undead, who is Red, and what makes her such a "wanted" woman?
I refuse to give spoilers, so if you are looking for a recap of the story here, forget it... you just need to know that Red, is who is wanted, dead or undead. She's quick with a gun, and you don't want to get on her bad side, but Trace Monroe dares to attempt to capture Red, and one could only try to assume in the end who really captured who. In addition to Red and Trace, we meet a group of survivors that come across the path our characters have taken... a path each is never sure that they are aiming in the right direction. Always running from the biters, living dead, the main goal is survival. Scott has built a solid foundation with her plot line and characters. The flow of the book was steady and truly only slowed at the very end, ultimately, one doesn't always expect a happy ending when a book involves zombies, and this sort of had that homey, all should be well ending. Alas, as you'll find out tomorrow, that isn't how things will stay.
Although the main character, Red, is extremely strong and very sarcastic, I can tell that she has just been hardened by this cruel world that she has found herself. She is willing to shoot and ask questions later because that is how you have to survive in this world. It’s fitting but it does take a bit of a toll when she meets Trace. She’s so hardened and so distrusting that she is putting everyone at a distance, and although I cannot blame her I still want for her to have these human moments. I mean otherwise why live? Isn’t acting like a zombie synonymous with pretty much being a zombie?
But, just as I was about to give up on her some things come out and the plot thickens, quite a bit! There are more characters introduced, more drama, more zombies, and more craziness! And although this ends on a cliff hanger I really liked where it ended. It was like a chapter of Red’s life closed and she’s ready for the next, no matter how terrifying.
The one downside is the timing. I could not place how much time had passed, nor could I understand what ages the characters were. I also listened on Audible and although the narrator was very good I think it took away from the story a bit. By the thick Southern accent it was hard to place ages. Easy to place sarcasm though!
